According to multiple reports, three UN organizations have adopted the Tezos e-voting solution, Electis. Since its inception, the popularity of Electis has continued to grow. Several organizations have adopted its use to conduct fair and open source elections. The most popular of such organizations have been government agencies and non-profit organizations.
Transparency in voting at these organizations is crucial as they make decisions on climate change, carbon footprints and other critical global issues. Various estimates show that more than 20,000 voters have used the Electis voting solution. The latest organizations to adopt the Electis voting system are three UN organizations.
The first is YOUNGO, the official children’s and youth arm of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The UNFCCC is an umbrella for children under 35 years of age. It is also the umbrella body for youth NGOs who want the UNFCCC to hear the voices of young people.
Some of these youth NGOs are also researching and developing policies related to climate change. They vote to ensure that the UNFCCC has a well-defined long-term path. The youth group SDG7 is another UN organization adopting the Electis voting system. The purpose of this organization is to provide a voice for youth regarding decisions and policies in the energy sector.
It should be noted that this organization is one of the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) established by the UN seven years ago. Having witnessed the positive effect of the Electis voting system on activities at SDG7, one SDG7 member said that the voting system would be used for the organization’s elections this year and for many election years to come.
Women And Gender Constituency (WGC) is the third UN organization to adopt the electronic voting solution of Tezos. The WGC is an umbrella organization for 28 non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It is primarily responsible for ensuring that women can realize their rights and priorities when they demand them.
Increased adoption of the Tezos electronic voting system
Historically, there have often been questions about the transparency and accuracy of elections. However, the electronic voting solution built by Tezos (Electis) seeks to clear all those doubts. The adoption of this voting system by these UN organizations expands the number of organizations using Tezos Electis.
Last September, the French government tested the Electis in preparation for its use in the upcoming local elections. Additionally, Kings College London, Ritsumeikan University, Japan, and 78 other tertiary institutions have tested and adopted Electis. Electis is a fully encrypted and anonymous electronic voting system.
Electis has further enhanced the reputation and population of the Tezos blockchain. Tezos’ other high-profile projects and collaborations have not been as popular as Electis. One of the biggest problems facing blockchain projections is the creation of public services. It is often the factor that determines whether a project will stand the test of time or fade quickly. The growing adoption of Electis and other Tezos blockchain projects would also have a positive impact on its native token.
